Fabulous French Onion Dip

I enjoy chips and dip, but this recipe for Fabulous French Onion Dip is out of this world. It’s so flavorful with the sautéed onion and garlic. This is a definite winner at a party or pot luck. It’s really only 5 ingredients if you do not count the salt and pepper too. It’s a fast and easy snack  to share with your friends and family.

I’ve also adapted it to make it healthier than traditional French onion dips (adapted from: The Chew). I use fat free Greek yogurt and mayo made with olive oil. I wouldn’t say it’s healthy, but it’s better for you than the original version.   Let me show you how to make it.
